Mrs. Valentino

Evidence of the true love between Rudolph Valentino and the woman he would marry, not once but twice, Natacha Rambova can be found. Even the thought of proving their love was unheard of until recently. Snarky, misogynistic comments were made about her, but the honesty of their love as husband and wife was accepted as far as I could see until the great fiction writers, i.e. Chaw Mank, David Bret decided she was a ready target and began to sling their mud. Why? Partly because that is what those kind of people do and partly because they wanted Valentino gay and in order to make him gay, the fact he was in love with and made love to his wife, had to go. Hence the lies. 

A major part of the "Valentino was gay" hoax by Bret was the vilification of Rambova. He began as he does with all his targets to call her names and along with Terhune's taglines the attack was on. How antiquated of them to participate in attacking Rambova so unjustly, behavior which was considered offensive back in the 1920's. 

Natacha Rambova, according to all who knew her, had an infectious and pleasing laugh, was generous with her time and money. She recognized talent and advocated folks who became great stars. The article below was coverage of Natacha's trip east in the spring of 1922. And I am sorry for all the damage Bret and Terhune have done to this charming and lovable lady. She was the best thing that ever happened to Valentino. #rudolphvalentinosqueen

  1. As someone once quoted Natasha Rambova was Valentino's Queen. True back then still true now! Will always be true.

  2. David Bret is the scourge of the world of biographers. It is a tragedy what that awful man has heaped on Valentino's and Rambova's legacies.
    One consolation is that other authors recognize his trash for what it is. Several times when I have been reading various biographies of classic film stars, I have seen Bret's name mentioned as having also authored a book on the subject (ie. Crawford, Gable, Flynn, etc.). NEVER have I seen another author make a positive reference to Bret's writing. The exact opposite is the case.

    1. For what reason has David Bret have for scolding Evelyn that Rudy was gay!! What reason! He has no proof he keeping banging on his own one tune piano , saying Rudy was gay. Either he puts up or shuts up. And it is true, nobody has anything good to say about his books. Read a sample of one of his books, not impressed.The newspapers of the day report that Rudy and Natasha were communicating with each other during the last days of his life. So if that is not evidence that they did not care for each other I do not know what is? And I believe that they would married for a third time had Rudy lived. Gay men hate Natasha from what I heard, not all of them but those who believe Bret who is a colossal liar.

    2. Maybe whoever questions Bret gets into trouble and suffers the wrath of his madness. He offers no backup and no facts. All he does is give grief to others.

    3. 1:17: The "wrath of his madness" is on point. Over the years I was contacted by many of Bret's other victims. There were and are many.

    Please add the creepy Kenneth Anger to the list of Valentino marriage myth makers. His Hollywood Babylon sold millions, yet is chock full of salacious lies. Unfortunately, people seem to love titillating gossip over the truth. Bret figured that out, but he is such a crummy writer that even the eager readers of lurid fiction won't buy his crap. Terhune provides his only platform to rage against any woman with whom Valentino had a relationship.

    1. 12:57: "Lurid fiction" indeed. About his celebrity targets and critics. He has tried to rewrite my life story, lying all the way.

    1. Terhune especially is obsessed with Valentino. Really disturbing, he hates Natasha with a vengeance.

    2. Why isn't anything being done about Bret?

    3. Someone wrote and I agree that Bret should not be near a computer. Some people wish that also, I am sure.

    4. He's a pipsqueak. Evelyn sued him for defamation and won. The only people who entertain the little rodent are Terhune, Shady Ma, HFSL, and the Mistress of MAtB.

    5. 5:11: I did win! David Bret was found guilty of defaming me and ordered to pay damages. The rest of that story soon.
